Sailing Ship FORTHBANK – a beautiful hull profile…

This ship had an interesting career…. Built in 1877 as ‘NEBO’ for a Glasgow company. Changed hands again, before Andrew Weir purchased her in 1894. She became the first ‘ FORTHBANK’ for 15 years before changing name to ‘LEONIDA’ and Peruvian owners in 1909. (a little unusual). Wrecked 2 years later on the S American coast.
